"The federal government is working on a plan to phase out Russian natural gas. I welcome this, because time does not wait", - the head of state wrote on his Twitter.
It's worth reminding that earlier in April, Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer pointed out that the republic is able to refuse Russian gas only a few years later, since Vienna is extremely dependent on energy resources supplied by Russia.
Note that the Austrian Ministry of Finance opposed the introduction of a ban on the import of Russian gas.
However, on April 21, Austria completely abandoned the purchase of Russian oil.
